Remember my Groovy DIY Poncho and Cozy Cowl Sweater refashions? Well today my lovelies I shall show you how to create a comfortable and oh-so-versatile maxidress from the very last of the scraps left over from those two fab projects!
Let’s dive right in and get started on the scrappy tablecloth maxidress!
You’ll need that leftover sweater top + those chopped knit scraps remaining from the two previous refashions and a funky rectangular tablecloth that wraps loosely around your body. (if you haven’t yet created the poncho & cowl simply chop the top off of a sweater or longsleeved t-shirt)
Arrange the chopped knit scraps around the sweater top neckline…
and stitch together to bind the raw edge and give the sweater a lovely neckline detail.
A much nicer look that prevents fraying!
Grab the tablecloth, fold it in half lengthwise with right sides facing and stitch the ends together to form a large skirt.
Pop the sweater top over the skirt with right sides together and raw edges lined up.
Zigzag over the outside seam for extra strength and to help prevent the knit from fraying. Pop it on and enjoy!
Wear it loose and easy, top it off with a fitted jacket, blazer or blouse or gather it at the waist with a coordinating belt!
Three fabulous new-to-you garments refashioned from one turtleneck sweater! The projects are so quick you can make them all on a relaxing day off: Start with the funky poncho, then move on to the snuggly cowl sweater and finish up with the groovy maxidress!
